Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners think. Residential garden hoses can’t effectively wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Somerville.
Our patio cleaning process begins with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that eliminates deep dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Somerville, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing except the pressure is kept considerably lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the absolute lowest water pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are often more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Somerville brick patio cleaning service begins with solvents that easily reach those deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the space look cleaner. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete can get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris gets damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the concrete patio!
Do not count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that promise to show you how to safely clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Somerville Pressure Washing has several years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Somerville and the neighboring communities, and our professional soft wash techniques and brushes will ensure all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and ready for you to enjoy!
